Whether you’re pumped up for a new take on the massive achievement of Stephen King’s IT, or you make up the percentage of horror fans who harbor doubts that Bill Skarsgård will be able to fill those large clown shoes of Tim Curry, there’s one thing we as a whole have in common. And that is either way, you’re curious. Curious enough as to no matter what your feelings are on it, you’re probably going to see it anyway as Pennywise the Clown is arguably one of King’s most terrifying creations from the author’s brilliantly twisted mind.
Over the course of last year, we’ve brought you snippets here and there of photos leaked from production. From a shot of Pennywise as a nerve-wracking jack-in-the-box, to missing children posters from the set of the film. All most likely to peak our interest, and dammit to hell if it hasn’t. Now, make-up effects artist Tom Woodruff has shared a photo from his personal Instagram account displaying Pennywise in action on the set. Behold, Skarsgård in all his painted nightmare glory!
And as Negan would say, That’s creepy as shit.
New Line Cinema’s adaptation of Stephen King’s IT is currently in post-production and slated for a September 8, 2017 theatrical release. The film stars Jack Dylan Grazer (Tales of Halloween) as Stan Uris, Wyatt Oleff (Guardians of the Galaxy) as Eddie Kaspbrak, Chosen Jacobs (Hawaii Five-0) as Mike Hanlon, Jeremy Ray Taylor (42) as Ben Hanscom, Jaeden Lieberher (Midnight Special) as Bill Denbrough, Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things) as Richie Tozier, and introducing Sophia Lillis as Beverly Marsh.
